This monument consists of the well preserved remains of a prehistoric settlement which survives as a turf-covered mound of stones, 32m NW-

SE by 30m NE-SW and 1.5m high. This mound contains the remains of 3 structures. Two structures are aisled rectangular houses - these have evidence for displaced pillar stones and lintel slabs and in one case

a number of roofing slabs remain in situ. Three upright slabs forming part of a third structure are visible at the centre of the mound. On

the S of the site are traces of a boulder-faced wall. This probably

once surrounded the settlement, but the margins of the mound have

been disturbed by ploughing and robbing. The area to be scheduled measures a maximum of 70m WSW-ENE by 65m N-S, to include the mound

with houses and an area around in which traces of activities

associated with the construction and occupation of the settlement

will survive, as shown in red on the attached map.

About Scheduled Monuments

Historic Environment Scotland is responsible for designating sites and places at the national level. These designations are Scheduled monuments, Listed buildings, Inventory of gardens and designed landscapes and Inventory of historic battlefields.

We make recommendations to the Scottish Government about historic marine protected areas, and the Scottish Ministers decide whether to designate.

Scheduling is the process that identifies, designates and provides statutory protection for monuments and archaeological sites of national importance as set out in the Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Areas Act 1979.

We schedule sites and monuments that are found to be of national importance using the selection guidance published in Designation Policy and Selection Guidance (2019)

Scheduled monument records provide an indication of the national importance of the scheduled monument which has been identified by the description and map. The description and map (see ‘legal documents’ above) showing the scheduled area is the designation of the monument under the Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Areas Act 1979. The statement of national importance and additional information provided are supplementary and provided for general information purposes only. Historic Environment Scotland accepts no liability for any loss or damages arising from reliance on any inaccuracies within the statement of national importance or additional information. These records are not definitive historical or archaeological accounts or a complete description of the monument(s).

The format of scheduled monument records has changed over time. Earlier records will usually be brief. Some information will not have been recorded and the map will not be to current standards. Even if what is described and what is mapped has changed, the monument is still scheduled.

Scheduled monument consent is required to carry out certain work, including repairs, to scheduled monuments. Applications for scheduled monument consent are made to us. We are happy to discuss your proposals with you before you apply and we do not charge for advice or consent. More information about consent and how to apply for it can be found on our website at
